My name is Tim Maxwell. I was a LtCol in the USMC when I was wounded in Iraq in 2004. A mortar round exploded and inserted shrapnel into my brain.   Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI.  

It was a long time ago, really. And since that time, a few things. I have learned that medicine is very complicated, confusing, and addicting.  I have learned that paperwork, such as PEB, VA, and Social Security, is brutal.

But most of all, I have learned that being alone is the worst. Those who stay in their service, regardless of their frustration, are better than those who live alone.  But we can't be in the military forever. At some point, we have to get out.  And as most of you already know, being a civilian again is hard. Real hard. 

So, my wife Shannon and I stood up SemperMax Support Fund.  It isn't the same as the military. We can't all be together. At least, not every day. But we can get together at our annual Semper Fi Farm - Veterans Flag Day. And when you are down and out, and need a place to stay, you can come to our farm. 

If things are not going well, and you are wondering why you are still alive; come to our farm.

If you're life is boring you to death, literally, come to our farm. You won't be bored, I promise you that.

The bottom line....get involved! Be active! Stop being alone. Come help us. Or help someone else! It's pretty easy to find foundations that could use volunteers. 


That mentality is what we are all about......
